Dr. Susanne Picard
Consultative Committee for Thermometry (CCT) 

Dr Susanne Picard is the BIPM KCDB Coordinator and the Executive Secretary of the Consultative Committee for Thermometry (CCT). She is presently in charge of the development of a revised version of the BIPM Key Comparison Database. Susanne received her B.Sc. degree at the University of Stockholm (Sweden) in 1981, including studies at the University of Sussex (UK). This was followed by a Ph.D. in Molecular Spectroscopy at the University of Stockholm in 1988, for which a part of the work was carried out at the University Paris XI (Orsay, France). Susanne joined the Length Section at the BIPM in 1987 where she was involved in work on laser frequency standards and participated in the development and operation of an optical frequency comb. In 2003 she joined the Ionizing Radiation Department, where she developed a primary standard in form of a graphite calorimeter to determine absorbed dose to water in high-energy photon beams. Since 2015 she is sharing her time with the International Liaison and Communication department.


Prof. Roland Span
Ruhr University Bochum 

Prof. Roland Span studied mechanical engineering at Ruhr‐University Bochum (RUB) from 1983 to 1988. In 1992, he completed his Ph.D. with a thesis introducing a new reference equation of state for carbon dioxide. His work was supervised by Prof. W. Wagner. In 1999, he completed his habilitation with a thesis entitled “Multiparameter Equations of State – An Accurate Source of Thermodynamic Property Data”. At ALSTOM Power Technologies in Switzerland, he worked on gas‐turbine related topics, including humidified gas‐turbines and CCS. In 2002, he became chair of Thermodynamics and Energy Technologies at University of Paderborn. In 2006, he changed to RUB, where he is chair of Thermodynamics, leading an institute with about 25 scientists and 25 student co‐workers. Prof. Span has published highly cited scientific papers dealing mostly with experimental and theoretical work on thermodynamic properties and the application of corresponding models to process simulations in energy technologies. He is member of several scientific committees, including editorial boards and working groups of international unions like IAPWS. He is dean of the faculty of mechanical engineering, one of three speakers of the Research Department Closed Carbon Cycle Economy at RUB and member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts.


Prof. J P Martin Trusler
Imperial College London 

J P Martin Trusler is Professor of Thermophysics in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London. He gained his bachelor’s and PhD degrees in Chemistry from University College London, and held Lindermann Trust and Ramsay Memorial Fellowships before joining the faculty at Imperial in 1988. Martin’s research interests focus on measurement and modelling of the thermophysical properties and phase behaviour of fluids, especially under extreme conditions of temperature and pressure, with applications in CCS, oil & gas exploration and production, and chemicals. In 2016, he was awarded the Guggenheim Medal for contributions to research in thermodynamics by the UK Institution of Chemical Engineers. He is a former editor of the Journal of Chemical Thermodynamics, Chair of the International Association of Chemical Thermodynamics, and the author of over 150 papers in peer-reviewed journals.


Prof. Attila Csaszar
ELTE Budapest

Attila G. Császár (58) is a Hungarian chemist, recipient of the Széchenyi Prize of the State of Hungary in 2017. Dr. Császár is a full professor at the Institute of Chemistry of Eötvös Loránd University since 2002. He is head of the Laboratory of Molecular Structure and Dynamics, the MTA-ELTE Complex Chemical Systems Research Group, and the local PhD School of Chemistry. He is also an honorary research fellow of the Department of Physics and Astronomy, University College London. He is chair of the COST action MOLIM: Molecules in Motion (CM1405), running between 2015-2019, and secretary of Division I of IUPAC for the biennium 2018-2019. Dr. Császár published close to 250 scientific papers in the fields of theoretical, structural and physical chemistry in journals like Science, Nature, Phys. Rev. Lett. and J. Am. Chem. Soc., for which he received close to 8500 citations (his H-index is 48 and his i10 index is 145).
